#SaveCHIP Day of Action

By Anthony Kassir

From the APA:
850,000 Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) beneficiaries experience serious behavioral or emotional disorders but their access to mental health treatment has been in jeopardy for over 100 days. Congressional inaction has created a dire situation for these children and their families.
Today, the American Psychiatric Association is joining other frontline physician groups in leading a #SaveCHIP Day of Action. Our goal is to unite physicians and tell lawmakers that they must take immediate action to extend CHIP funding for five years. Will you join your physician colleagues today and stand up for your patients' access to care? Our online tool makes it easy for you to:
The time to act is now! The more voices we raise, the more likely Congress will be compelled to act. Tell your lawmakers that they must provide the stability needed to ensure that this successful, bipartisan program continues for the 9 million children who depend on it.
